You asked for it, you got it.
Thanks a lot... :p

Now I am going to have to inventory and document all my Manta A models....

BTW, http://members.aol.com/opelgtclub/modelle1.html is a freind of mine Rolf Ewert. He does have about every Opel GT model ever made and was my "dealer", back a few years ago when I had a GT. When I finally realized it was futile and too expensive to finish the collection, I sold what I had piece by piece on Ebay to get some money to play with my real Opels.

But as these urges go.. they return with a vengence. So I limited myself to Manta A collectibles only. Of which I think I have an almost complete collection. I am missing a few of the new Schucos though, and the 1/24th resin kits.

I do have one of the limited 1/24th Manta resin kits (a TE2800 to be exact), but currently Gene (BQS) is building it for me. :D

I also have been collecting a lot of ADs, brochures, etc.. for the Manta as well. Maybe a Collectible Paper forum as well.. to compare Ads, etc.. On second though never mind.. I would have to inventory all those as well if you did that ;)

Yes and No..

I have a Lexan 1/24th Manta A Model, Custom built, Manufacturer unknown.

I also have a 1/66th (HO Scale) - Bauer (Yellow GT/E) I havent had the money to buy all the Bauer Manta Models. I think there were 8 or so colors.

I've attached a couple of pictures of slot cars made by White Point.

Love to know what they look like in real life. They look like the Bauer models. But the decals are similar to a lot of the IMU race versions.

They are designed to run on Carrera 1:24 tracks. White Point seems to be popular on the European slot racing circuit from a casual reading.

Forgot to mention that our friends to the North have a HO slot website that has several of the Bauer Manta HO models for sale and pictures of the ones that don't have. They also have a couple of Opel Rekords for sale.

That must be the one I have then, although the paint job looks a bit on the custom side.

2008 Opel GT

Was at Hobby Lobby and, as always, looked at the car isle.
They have a 2008 yellow Opel GT. They were 30% off so I got it for $13.

Here is a picture of it. Also, at an HEB, which is a grocery store here in TX, I spotted a Speedster in the toy isle. I has the little blitz on the hood. Two Opels in one day!
